The C-97 was the AAF cargo/transport version of the B-29. Between 1943 and 1950, 74 Stratofreighters were ordered: the first flight occurred on November 15, 1944. A tanker version (KC-97) was introduced in 1950 using the "flying Boom" refueling system and all subsequent USAF contracts for C-97s were for tankers. In all, 890 aircraft were ordered, 74 C-97s and 816 KC-97s. Was delivered to the USAF in January 1956 and served with various units all over the world before being retired in 1977.
